SA Group will be taking on the 3-day Atlantic Coast Challenge on Friday 6th October, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th October. The Ultra Marathon starts near Padstow, through Perranporth finishing at Land’s End on the final day. The company will be entering a team of walkers and runners across the three days to raise money and awareness for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC).
Since 2007, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, in partnership with Greenwich Hospital, has distributed almost £30,000,000 in grants to over 30 front line charities. Through the work of these charities this funding has helped care for older age veterans, improved the relationships within naval families, assisted sailors in times of need, as well as improving morale of those serving.
SA Group began in 2009 and the company’s core values include actively supporting military personnel and veterans. The company are proud supporters of the Armed Forces Covenant and have been awarded Gold in the Employer support Recognition Scheme for their ongoing commitment.
Steve Jackson, CEO and founder of SA Group served in the Royal Navy for over 10 years. He acknowledges that this experience gave him the knowledge and tools needed to start SA Group over 14 years ago.
“I’m very proud of my service, and so pleased to be able to give back. I feel that it’s the least I can do to support this important charity which has done so much to help those serving. With new technology it’s much easier to communicate with home, but when I served it was a lot more difficult. The RNRMC helped me enormously during that time. Just a simple thing like a phone card to keep me connected with loved ones made a world of difference.”
Steve has organised a team of SA Group employees to participate in the challenge: “It’s great to have a group of enthusiastic participants joining me for this event. There is a real sense of camaraderie within the team, and it will be a real boost to our company culture.”
The team would be grateful for any support including raising awareness. Please click here to donate.
